Great book, yet another Salvatore fantasy story that deals with atypical characters and archetypes. Very interesting protagonist. Unfortunately the first book in this series is not nearly as interesting.
When I started reading this book I was very angry that it didn't take place right after the first book but went back in time to tell the story of Brynn. There were so many catastrophes at the end of the last book that I picked the next one up to find out what happened next. Now I am glad because I just know the last book is going to be epic with everyone coming together in some way or another.

An interesting second book in a trilogy that leaves the cliffhanger at the end of the first book and follows another story of a character introduced in the first book, but with not much time spent upon.

M-E-H, Meh. It wasn’t a bad book or anything, it just didn’t draw me in. I liked the various cultures, especially the Jhesta Tu. I also really liked Brynn’s fiery spirit, but I found it difficult to care about her struggles. War is not really something that I can relate to.
Surprisingly one of best of Salvatore's works, dare I say even better than most of the Legend of Drizzt books :O. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes adventure/fiction
